Season 28 Tier List: Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings

Last updated on Mar 07, 2023 at 12:40 by Impakt 8 comments

This page goes over the current state of each class in Season 25 in respect to their solo clearing capabilities and provides a full ranking of each build currently available on the site.


Top Solo Greater Rift Pushing Builds for each Class

Season 28 will not see a massive meta shakeup, but undoubtedly has one of the largest and most intricate seasonal themes ever made. Every build will be significantly more powerful, durable, and have better quality of life than at any point in the game's history once you work your way through the seasonal theme.



In Season 28, Raekor was reworked and massively buffed to primarily benefit Boulder Toss. This along with several other Barbarian builds dominated the leaderboards that season, but that was also primarily due to the massive seasonal theme power that Barbs had access to. Boulder Toss lost the least amount of power coming into this season, and should be the go-to Barbarian build for solo pushing.



Crusaders are unfortunately the only class to receive no changes whatsoever in this Season's patch notes. Crusaders will be the weakest class in almost every category of game play, but still have a couple of decent builds to choose from. However, do not expect anything new and exciting on the Crusader.


Demon Hunter

New in Season 28, Natalya's has been reworked to be build around Spike Traps. This is looking to be an extremely powerful, but complex build that requires a multiple-button setup, solid positioning, and practice to execute well. Demon Hunters overall are looking quite strong in the new season, so if you are looking for a new challenge, definitely give the class a shot.



Monk is another class that is receiving very little in the way of changes for Season 28. We can expect the meta for monks to stay roughly the same, which means LoD Wave of Light will still be the go-to build for endgame pushing.



Necromancers are getting several powerful new builds this season, including some massive buffs to the Death Nova builds. Especially with some of the specific seasonal theme powers, Necromancers are looking to absolutely dominate this season, with several S-tier builds to choose from.


Witch Doctor

Mundunugu is once again looking like the set of choice for Witch Doctors, thanks to some decent buffs. Mundunugu is exceptional at dealing huge burst damage to small areas of targets, which is hard to pull off well. However, with good enough play you can produce massive explosions that will decimate huge groups of enemies, or bosses.



With some last-minute changes to a few key items, Meteor Wizards are looking to be extremely powerful in the new season. The ability to run both Meteor Shower and Star Pact as runes should make both Tal Rasha and LoD potent builds capable of clearing at the highest level. These were already capable of GR 150 solo in Season 28, and Wizards had the worst class powers out of any class at the time. With an incredibly powerful new theme to boost them up, Wizards should take the most dominant build spot overall in Season 28.


Full Build Tier List

The difference between the tiers below is roughly equal to 5 GR levels. Also remember that builds evolve and adapt, and the tier list below will almost certainly end up over or undervaluing some builds as they play out over the season. This list is by now means set in stone, and has plenty of room for change as we learn more about the new builds.
